Today, it'll go back sweet and not necessarily perfect, because happen to me sometimes when baking mistakes. But let's start from the beginning…

My dear fellow blogger Karen from the blog Karens Backwahn This year's event a hiking book campaign, in which a baking book goes on a journey and during the post-baked recipes of various food bloggers and published. Finally, the book has – these are to be “Fancy shoes” by Hannes Weber – a stop inlaid with me. The choice of the recipe much not easy for me, but I finally chose the almond chocolate cake.

The Result?

Unfortunately, not optically perfect, because I used the wrong Guglform. For this reason, from the Gugel more of a wreath made… But the taste of the cake is really delicious!
